The NYB is made of independent 28 ton modules which can be connected together up to 255 tons cooling capacity. Every module is an external chiller producing chilled water with high efficiency scroll compressors, axial fans, microchannel coils, and a system side plate heat exchanger. Units with the desuperheater option can also produce hot water for free.
With the NYB it is possible to couple up to 9 chillers, the units are designed to keep overall unit dimensions to a minimum. This modularity adapts the installation to actual system development requirements. Meanwhile, each single unit is still able to act independently. Therefore, the cooling capacity can be increased over time in a simple and economic manner. The NYB is the most compact integrated free-cooling chiller in North America and easily fits through doors and into elevators.
The modular concept provides the added benefits of single unit functionality with high efficiency performance and has optional partial heat recovery when in mechanical cooling mode. Modules with integrated free cooling can be used in conjunction with mechanical cooling only units to customize the offering as the building requires.
